UPDATE: Martins was, in fact, at Sounders training on Friday.
After the reports yesterday that Obafemi Martins was on his way to Besiktas (or more clubs in Turkey) his agent took to Twitter today to deny the rumors. The agent did so in both Turkish and English.
Obafemi Martins le ilgili basında ve sosyal medyada çıkan asılsız haberlere kimse kulak asmasın! Martins Seattle ın oyuncusudur !— Tekin Birinci (@tekinbirinci) June 20, 2014
Kendisiyle az önce konuştum şu an Amerikada ve ne ben ne de o hiçbir kuluple konuşmuş değiliz. Seattle la sözlesmesi devam ediyor ve mutlu.— Tekin Birinci (@tekinbirinci) June 20, 2014
Obafemi Martins isnot linked with any Turkish Clubs,he is player of Seattle & very happy to be there.İs not true that he joined turkish team— Tekin Birinci (@tekinbirinci) June 20, 2014
The second Turkish tweet says that Tekin talked to Oba just this morning and that Martins is in Seattle right now.
Remember when Oba said that summer in MLS would be his World Cup? You don't just quit a World Cup. You get kicked out, or you win.
